Ho·lis·tic: Characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by a reference to the whole.

Welcome to Flo Life BJJ+ conveniently located at the corner of Garrison and Jewell Avenue in beautiful Lakewood, Colorado.  At Flo Life we recognize that we are each unique, remarkable and special.  Our needs and desires are individual to each of us.  Whether you are a brand new beginner or a more experienced athlete…we have the perfect “flo” for you!

FLO Life BJJ Colorado

Kids and adults of all ages, backgrounds or experience level will benefit from our classes.  At Flo Life you will learn effective, modern martial arts in a safe non-threatening environment.  Yes! We teach all the lethal joint locks, chokes and and submissions that make BJJ one of the most most lethal martial arts on the planet… but at Flo Life we also develop the ‘whole person’ not just the physical extensions.

In psychology, flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.  Learning to reach a state of flow (we call it “FLO” Finding Limitless Opportunities in life), or maximum potential, in your life can benefit you in many ways.

For children it translates to better school grades, more focus, improved concentration, higher self-esteem and more.  For adults it means; better stress release, improved awareness, better physical and mental health, more energy, and learning to “tap into” the full awareness of life.  Martial Arts training is the perfect path towards achieving “flo” in you or your child’s life.  Our professional instructors and coaches will be your guide toward reaching your fullest potential both on and off the mats.

Your Spa-Like Experience  When you walk into Flo Life BJJ+ you’ll experience a clean,
professional “spa-like” environment.  Our “boutique style” school offers a more personalized training experience, with amenities to make your transition back into the “real world” stress free.  Our school feels less like a gym and more like your own personal haven as you escape the real world.  We have a large, clean fully matted training area with everything you need for a challenging Jiu-Jitsu.  Including the use of technology in the classroom to enhance your learning experience.

Our larger than life 55 inch TV monitor assists our instructors in teaching techniques by showing them at multiple angles and in slow motion.  Students find that this unique structure helps significantly in learning and retaining new techniques and concepts.   Our students also have access to our vast public and private library of over 1,000 BJJAfter40 and BJJForKids videos and instructional techniques.  After you train you can relax, watch a training video or grab a hot shower before heading back to work.  We also offer the convenience of a towel service, eliminating worries about wet towels in your gym bag or car.

Training On the GO We’ve made learning easier, convenient and way more fun!  Take your training ‘on the go’ and enjoy the benefit of reviewing class material from your portable devices anytime… and anywhere.  We video record all drills and techniques and make them available on our school channel.  You’ll never miss a technique if you happen to miss a class.  Our members have found that this method makes learning and retaining information much easier.


Adult Flo  Adults of all ages participate in our martial arts classes.  At Flo Life we offer both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and kickboxing classes.  BJJ is an ancient Samurai battlefield art, adapted for modern society as a lethal self-defense system.  Jiu-Jitsu, translated as the ‘Gentle Art’ is practiced by men, women of all ages.  BJJ teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique and leverage.  Not only will you learn self-defense, meet people and have fun…you’ll also get in the best shape of your life training Jiu-Jitsu!

My sons and I had the opportunity to train with Mike and Sheena at Flo Life Brazilian Jiu-jitsu while on a road trip. It was an awesome experience. The training space is clean, comfortable, and well laid out. Mike has a deep knowledge of martial arts and his BJJ teaching style is stellar. Mike, Sheena, and all of their students were friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend training at Flo Life if you live in the area or are just passing through and looking for place to do a drop in class.
